Description
Moving from Hitler's rise to power in 1933 Germany to the advent of the Cold War, this second book in Ken Follett's Century Trilogy is the sequel to the page-turning epic Fall of Giants, and is "just as potent, engrossing, and prolix as the opening opus" (Publishers Weekly). Winter of the World picks up where the first book left off, tracing a dozen entangled families—American, German, Russian, English, Welsh—as they enter a time of enormous social, political, and economic turmoil, including the Third Reich, the Spanish Civil, the global spasms of World War II, and the earth-shaking detonations of American and Soviet atomic bombs. Carla von Ulrich, born of German and English parents, finds her life engulfed by the Nazi tide until she commits a deed of great courage and heartbreak. American brothers Woody and Chuck Dewar, each with a secret, take separate paths to momentous events—one in Washington, the other in the bloody jungles of the Pacific. English student Lloyd Williams discovers, in the crucible of the Spanish Civil War, that he must fight Communism just as hard as Fascism. American social climber Daisy Peshkov cares only for popularity and the fashionable crowd, until the war transforms her life not once but twice, even as her cousin Volodya carves out a position in Soviet intelligence that will affect both this war and the war to come. As always, Follett's historical background is brilliantly researched and rendered, his action fast moving, and his characters nuanced and emotionally authentic.

"Abandon your normal activities for a couple of days when you crack this one open, because you're likely to get hooked like a Copper River salmon."—Seattle Times
